Say Cheese

This weekend went too fast.  I don't even remember why.  Saturday morning we headed to the hospital to get a few tests completed for Chloe, the dreaded blood draw that they couldn't get in Seattle after 3 tries and an x-ray.  I have to give credit to the gals at memorial hospital, they were amazing.  Chloe was a bit scared but they made everything quick and easy.  We are ready to be done with testing for a while but we have a few more to go in the next few weeks.  After the hospital it was all a blur.  We did a little shopping, we did a little relaxing, we did a little cleaning and the weekend was gone.  

This evening while we were waiting for dinner Chloe decided to ham it up with her necklaces.  I grabbed my little Cannon and we had fun saying cheese.   And she has some serious pucker action but if you are going to take that one on you better be prepared for a wet one :)
She thinks she's hilarious and she's right :)

Wordless Wednesday - Touchdown!


Sunday Snapshot - 6 Months as a Family!

I have not been posting much but I could not let today go unmarked.  Life has been incredibly busy and it does not show signs of slowing down.  Today marks 6 months Since Chloe was placed in our arms.  There have been so many changes in the last 6 months it is truly hard to believe that it has only been 6 months.

Our family is really starting to get into a grove. It was not an easy six months but as they say it is worth it.  Chloe is going to be 2 in a couple months and boy can we tell.  This morning she almost had a full on kicking screaming throw yourself on the floor tantrum because daddy did not understand she wanted her bracelets. It must be so frustrating to be a toddler. We still have rough nights now and then (like last night) but for the most part sleep issues are fading.  Eating is MUCH better although do not even show Chloe a strawberry if you want her to eat anything else.

She loves strawberries and dill pickles.  She prefers to craisins (cranberries) to raisins but lik…

Ketchup - It Is Serious!


She Calls Me Mom!

With all the craziness in my life right now, these pictures make me smile.  Someone has FINALLY started calling me mom with some regularity this week!  I am no longer the nameless person who takes care of her!!  These shots are all from the 4th of July we had a fun day just playing in the backyard all day long.  Maybe next year she will stay up for the fireworks.

Happy Independence Day!

Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday weekend. We had a fun and relaxing day and hope tomorrow is just as good for Chloe's first 4th of July! I have lots more pictures to share I think between Jim and I we took a few hundred today.
